    Offline social life – The importance of community and public spaces – what have we learned during the corona virus?

    The lockdowns all around the world make us realise the importance of community and public life and spaces. Without coming together, our life is way more difficult. We are all closed into our homes and super narrow social bubbles. Even if we can have online “social life”, we cannot meet and have offline exchange with […]

    Let’s change now!

    Dear World, as we all see, our health care system and political structure are very fucked up! Let’s change our way of doing and don’t follow our life as where we were doing before the coronavirus pandemic! Let’s sit down and think about the problems! Who are our real heroes, what are the real needs, […]

    PERFECT WEATHER for doing research and writing an article about “Identity & Space”! = Family time!

    I love my life & work balance! 😀 “We are not missionaries but when something here works, such as, for example, the integration of refugees, disabled or elderly persons then this could surely be adopted as an example of how it could function at a larger scale. We present our experience in the form of […]

  • Always be positive!

    Always be positive!

    NOTHING – there is no such a thing like nothing, or maybe there is. Even nothing has two sides. You know what I mean? On one side, there are people who believe that there is such thing like nothing and on the other side, there are people who believe that there is no such a […]

    Education for All! – 1.o

    This post could be endless, so I start with the most important and then backwards in time… The Architecture for Refugees (I’m one of the co-founders there) started a collaboration with the Emergency Architecture & Human Rights organisation based in Copenhagen to build 99 more classrooms and football fields for refugees and local communities in the […]

  • Do you know what is the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”?!

    Do you know what is the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”?!

    I have just checked it! I’m working a lot with refugee housing projects around the world and in Switzerland and this question came to my mind? I’m wondering if it is legal to host an asylum seeker in a “housing settlement” with periods when they can enter or not?! This is the case in many […]
